Help with Metatrader 4

Postby shengani » Thu Jul 02, 2009 3:28 am

I am trying to set up a trading template and one of the requirements are the following:
MACD(5,8,9) PLUS SAR (0.01,0.1) all on the MACD chart.

I found this in your #3 Scalping Strategy

Just put up a regular MACD and then add the file below.

To add a custom indicator to MT4:
1. Close MT4 platform.
2. On your local disk find the folder you installed MT4 to.
3. Inside it find a folder called "experts", and within it another folder called "indicators".
4. Now, copy your custom indicator as is into the "Indicators" folder.
5. Run MT4 platform.
6. In the upper Menu go to:
"Insert" -> "Indicators" -> "Custom".
You should be able to see your new indicator there.

Hi Edward,

Thanks for a super forum. It is stimulating and relevant.

I have followed your instructions, but the Parabolic SW appears in a separate frame for some reason. How do get it to show in the same window as the MACD.

Use Navigator window to drag indicators from.
This way you can tell them where you want them to appear :)

Regards,
Edward
